Video Voyageur: 3Qs with Lemon Cash

Lemon Cash started out as a cover band, forming an alternative rock band with some local friends from their hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. Looking to evolve their music, Cory and Jeff found their sweet spot and transitioned into the country world where they would come to realize this is where their tastes and personalities fit best. 

The inspiration to switch to the country genre came from their parents: Jeff Sr. and Sandra. They introduced Jeff and Cory to country music at a very young age. Listening to a wide range of artists such as Patsy Cline, George Jones, George Strait, Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks. These country legends became the inspiration for the brothers beginning to write and perform their own songs with their signature blend of harmonies and a tinge of their love of rock music thrown into the lemonade of Lemon Cash. We caught up with the group for an exclusive Video Voyageur below!

Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically? 

We chose to visualize this song because it has such great energy. The message behind this song is to break out of that comfort zone and to do something that you’re not used to doing. The video is a representation of that message as it was our first show this summer where restrictions were lifted for having people come together for live music. It captures exactly the fun and the excitement we all had, and also the authenticity of our band.

What was the inspiration behind this video(visuals, storyline, etc.)? 

The inspiration behind this video was to get an up close and personal take on who we are as people and what to expect at a Lemon Cash show. We have footage of us taking pictures with fans, signing autographs, giving out drumsticks and just showing our sincere appreciation to everyone at our show.

We are immensely grateful for the support we have from our fans. We’d like to simply return the favour by giving them a reason to escape the real world, to dance, laugh and have an amazing time when they come and see us play. This video says it all.

What was the process of making this video?

The only process of this video was to make it as organic and natural as possible. We had a friend of ours walk around with a camera and capture real footage of us playing live and interacting with fans. This video is the perfect representation of who Lemon Cash is, what we’re like, and what to expect when you get to spend some time with us!

The Ruddy Ruckus Unveil New Single

After years of releasing acoustic guitar backed demos, alt-rockers The Ruddy Ruckus will release their debut album, Wentworth And Main, on September 10th. Produced by Luke Bentham (The Dirty Nil), engineered by Vince Soliveri (The Redhill Valleys), mixed by Dave Schiffman (PUP, Vampire Weekend, The OBGMs) and mastered by Harry Hess (Big Wreck, Monster Truck), Wentworth And Main is a gritty sonic representation of living in Hamilton, ON.

Starting out as a folk-punk alter ego for frontman Rob Brown, the Ruckus has evolved into an alt-rock phenom with the gradual additions of lead guitar player Jackson Dorie, bassist Giordano Modesto and drummer Patrick Brown. Drawing from influences such as Green Day and Big Wreck their sound could be described as a refreshing take on garage rock, the kind of sound you’d want to hear in dingy dive bars as much as sold out stadiums.

The Wilderness of Manitoba Debuts “Sometimes”

From The Wilderness of Manitoba’s inception, the band has redefined itself with every new release. Following a three year hiatus, they return with a new line-up and forthcoming album, Farewell To Cathedral – about leaving your safe place in order to move forward and grow. Many of the album’s songs deal with loss through the eyes of hope – believing in the hope one can find through melancholy. 

The LP’s latest offering, “Sometimes,” centres around disillusionment and doubt – an anti-love song in the folk tradition about all of the parts within a relationship that don’t seem to quite fit together at times. However, hopefulness prevails in the chorus’ refrain which is an ultimate reminder that we only feel this way “Sometimes.” 

Created and directed by Maggie Gray using both stop motion and timelapse photography techniques, the video depicts the common experience of grieving a relationship’s end.
